For 21 years now one of the voices you hear on the 911 line for the Sheriffs office is that of Deb Windle-Love. She has been a dispatcher since March of 1994 just months before the 911 system was implemented. She has seen many changed over the years as the 911 line has been enhanced. She loves her job even though it can feel lonely being one person responsible for the calls and needs of 72, 000 people in the county.
Prior to working at the Sherriff’s office Deb was employed at WFIN/WKXA for 16 years eventually becoming the office manager.
She is a lifelong Findlayite. She was a Defender through the 9th grade at St. Michael’s and a graduate of Findlay High School.
She was blessed with two children, a son and daughter. She lost her son in an auto accident. She has a granddaughter and grandson. She also has a furry companion, a dog named Cali.
When not dispatching she likes to cook, go to Lake Erie and enjoy the waves and spend time on Facebook to keep in touch with her friends. She is a “homebody and in in her comfort zone in her home.”
Her favorite phrase is , “This too shall pass”, which has gotten her through dark times in life.
Her parents were her role models, “married for 60 years, they were good people and taught me values, morals and to lead a good life.”
